Eliot, when you write a method like this:

	<primitive: 'primitiveAnAbsentPrimitiveMethod' module: 'FilePlugin' error: errorCode>

	^ errorCode

and the named primitive is absent, you reliably get PrimErrNotFound as the error code the first time, but it's often nil after:

(1 to: 1000) collect: [:i | (StandardFileStream fileNamed: 'test.txt') primAnAbsentPrimitiveMethod ]

Is this a bug?
